Tough talk from…..France???!!

Jacques Chirac spoke yesterday on French foreign policy that would include the use of nuclear weapons against terrorist states who threatened France.

Now, rather than make some predictable (if not well-deserved) comment about France’s lack of determination in the face of threats and their historical ineptitude to win any kind of war, I will just leave with two thoughts:

  • If the Bush had made a comment like this, what would the world reaction had been?
  • While I don’t disagree in principle with what Chirac said, does anyone take them seriously in matters such as this?

I’ll bite. What are they going to do? Use their cheeses of mass destruction? Hat tip to Annie C for that one.

And Jeanne d’Arc did not share Howard Dean’s illness. She was divinely inspired and a political genius. Hat tip to PC’s Dr. Thomas Grzebien and his fascinating course on the saint.
